Home School Field Trip Programs


A ride on the Discovery boat takes participants to an island for an extreme exploration experience. A naturalist will be onboard to share their knowledge of the most biologically diverse estuary in North America. Explorers will use seine nets and dip nets to discover and identify the animals found in the Indian River Lagoon.
